And then there's the glassware...
Champagne wine or sparkling wine has become a symbol of celebration.
Etiquette tip: Which glass?
To fully appreciate a Champagne wine you must give it the glass it deserves. Its volume and height must be enough to allow the bubbles the space to form and rise to the surface, whilst allowing the temperature to remain as constant as possible.
The ideal shape is that of a tulip, the Champagne saucer is one to avoid as the aromas and bubbles have too much space and are soon lost into the air.
The thickness of the glass also has a role to play, especially on the lips where its finesse heightens our sense of taste.

Business Card Exchange Protocol
Proper protocol in business and social situations usually includes the card exchange. A person of higher rank may offer their card to you. Accept the card and look at it for a few seconds. If appropriate make a positive comment about the card, such as the logo, the design, quality of the paper or embossing. When presenting a card, present it properly: face up and the writing so it can be read. The card must be clean and crisp. Cards should be kept in a handy pocket rather than deep in a handbag or wallet. Never leave home without your business cards. Tip from a World Leading Etiquette Coach - Gloria Starr
